I had my first show on thursday, I'm so glad it's out of the way!! Reasonable sales but no bookings, so that was a little disappointing, but it can only get better from here, right? I only got one maybe for a show and haven't been able to speak to her yet. I did pluck up courage to approach a friend who'd said she'd host a show but hadn't given me a date, I gave her copies of Oct and Nov host specials and she's really keen to get the Cranberry stoneware( Oct host special in UK), now we're struggling to find a date for end of Oct when we are both free, what with school half term holidays, Halloween etc.!!! She's really keen so I hope we can get it fixed up. I've got 2 more shows in Oct and my own Open House , to which I'm planning to invite c. 40 people, and 2 booked for November, and a couple of fairs to attend in Nov. I really want all the Super Starter bonuses!!!! Thanks for all your great ideas on this forum, you are truly an inspiration!!
